      1. I’m started baking recently with egg allergies. It’s been a while but so far most people have liked the 1/4 applesauce per egg replacement. I use un-sweetened or steam my own. For some things, I heard other people say that Ener-G’s egg replacement doesn’t do the job. Good luck!

  1. Hi Diane,

    I’am new to this way of cooking and am very excited to find your website! Being pre-diabetic and needing to lose weight, I’ve been trying to find alternative ways to cook. I’m eating low carb to keep my glucose levels in check. I would love to try the zucchini pancakes, however, I have never cooked with coconut flour and don’t know what to expect as far as carbs. Is this recipe a good option for pre-diabetics or diabetics? What is the carb count? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Linda,

      I am a long-time diabetic and eat a very low carb diet also. A TBLS of coconut flour won’t hurt a bit. My wife uses it in several recipes. It is very high in fiber.

  2. hi, those look delicious! ive seen you say one time that people baking with almond meal a lot will probably trigger an almond allergy… do you think it would be the same effect with coconut flour?

    1. Possibly but not too likely. I don’t think that just eating almond flour often will do that, but I think eating it daily or many times a day could possibly do it. I overdid it on walnut butter and think I did that to myself with walnuts. Just be moderate with it 🙂

  3. Great Idea, a few suggestions…. I will use less egg next time, it seemed to comprise a lot of the mass and flavor. Also, a good way to extract more water out of the zucchini before cooking would be nice. Other than that, probably keep experimenting with more/different spices. Great recipe though, and great website! My room mates are always jealous when they smell my delicious paleo cooking

      1. I don’t but you can run it through and create the recipe there to analyze it. I don’t care much about that though for myself- it’s mostly zucchini and a couple of eggs, so those are the facts 🙂

    1. To get water out of zuchini you have grated, put it in a tea towel and squeeze the heck out of it. Adding a bit of salt and letting it sit for 10-15 minutes before squeezing draws even more water. That dries it right out. I think I might try this in the summer when these veggies are plentiful.

  4. Hi, found my way here through the Foodee project, the recipe sounds great. I have not been able to find coconut flour in Ireland so I guess I will try it with almond flour and see how that works out.
    Someone else enquired about using almond but got no response, I wonder if they have tried it themselves, anyway I will experiment and see what happens.
    Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Hi Paleo Irish – I found coconut flour in many asian markets/african shops that have opened up recently. It is certainly available in these types of shops in Dublin and is easy to cook with.

      1. Thanks Irish Fi, I will keep my eyes open when I get to the larger cities, it’s good to know that you found it easily in Dublin – and it’s always nice to meet other irish paleos or primals 🙂

  5. I’ve used coconut flour in the past but now noticed an upset stomach with coconut flour (and milk). I’m not sure if my sensitivity it solely due to coconut (going to start an elimination diet) but any substitutes? Have you heard of upset stomach with coconut flour? Thanks so much!

    1. I make these pancakes with ground almond (almond flour?) and they are really tasty.

      Sometimes I substitute a few spoonfuls of milled flaxseed and it’s also yummy!

      At times I also add some dessicated coconut and guess what? Yummy!

  6. I made these during my Whole30. With bacon. I added zante currants to the batter for a touch of fruit. Perfect! Excellent healthy breakfast recipe! Thanks!

  7. These are good! I added parsley in the mix because I had it lying around and topped them with homemade guacamole and hot sauce. YUM!!! I made a batch and ate them all in one day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! 🙂

  8. squeezing the water out is KEY!! I tried making these the lazy way, without this step and ended up with some watery pancakes 🙁

  9. And always make sure it’s 100% organic (some companies
    load their superfood up with Niacin and other non-organic components
    — go for the organic green superfood and avoid the Niacin hangover).
    “Methylcobalamin is required for the function of the folate-dependent enzyme, methionine synthase. Not much research has been done to prove that this is the case though.

  14. This recipe lists 6 eggs, however, the recipe in my copy of 21DSD lists 3 eggs… Made the carrot version last night and 3 eggs wasn’t sufficient to bind it into pancakes. 5 seemed to work well, thought I’d share.

    Love the carrot version with burgers. Leftovers are great reheated with some bacon sandwiched in between!
